    Would you rank this in the top 5 of Cy-Hawk matchups?

    Didn't see any thread for this, also if you feel like it, name your top 5.

    My memory isn't that good anymore - I'd need a list of candidates. I assume we are talking MBB only?

    #2 behind the Lafester game.

    No others are close

    EDIT: and your poll options are stupid. We didn't get outplayed, we won the damn game.

    The word Lafester is all it takes to cause a Tavern Hok meltdown.

    Yeah, it was only the second time this series has been ranked teams and it lived up to that type of game.

    Yup. We got very outplayed in the first half, but we outscored them by 10 in the second, and when it counted we finished.

    There was the one where Fizer stood on the scorer's table after, but I don't remember much else about it anymore.

    you guys are so young.

    double OT game in 84 was phenomenal. beating them again in 85 in carver was also great.

    Re: Would you rank this in the top 5 of Cy-Hawk matchups?

    Let's see - a matchup of two top 25 teams that went down to the final seconds, and ISU came out on the right side of the decision? Clearly top 5. In fact, it's last night's game and 1984's game and then everything else.

    I'm too young to remember the Lafester game, so this is my all time best, but I completely understand those that have 1984 as their best.

    im im sure Fred would be the first to tell you we got outplayed. 49-35 out rebounded (attribute that to missed free throws maybe) Iowa destroyed us in their transition game (attribute that to not want to foul maybe). I still think Iowa State is the better team but on the box score you would wonder how ISU won this game. It has to be the Magic.

    I think that's fair to say. I was too young to remember all the classics.

    This was one of the great match-ups because Iowa was good. It is difficult to tell how good, and we will find that out as the year goes on. Basketball is a work in progress.

    Hard to remember because most of them are 12 years or more ago, many 20. There were some good ones, but I would put this at #2 behind '87
